This would be a good place to start reading up on the basics of JavaDB: http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/javadb/
If you need some help with the SQL data definition and data manipulation syntax and concepts, have a look here: http://www.w3schools.com/SQl/default.asp
A quick tutorial on the use of the JDBC API might also be useful: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/index.html
